Kru is a pioneer, living deeper in the jungle of northern Siam than any of his predecessors. He solves the problems caused by leopards and tigers attacking his stock by setting traps and killing those beasts. A baby chang (the Siamese word for elephant) is caught in his trap, and thinking he would tame it so it will work for him one day, he tethers it to a post under his house, which is on stilts. Its mother comes and destroys his house. Kru and his family flee to the village, where a mammoth herd of elephants suddenly appear and decimates the buildings in the village. But the villagers fight back.Written by

As filming took longer than anticipated, the budget rose from $70,000 to $95,000 with directors Merian C. Cooper and Ernest B. Schoedsack covering the shortfall themselves until Paramount agreed to pay the difference. (Paramount was well rewarded - the film was one of the biggest hits of the year.) See more »
Worth watching for the animal footage and scoring in the re-issue
This documentary was nominated for Artistic Quality of Production for the very first Academy Awards. The category appeared only once, apparently to give recognition to works with more critical than commercial success. Chang holds up very well and despite at times being too ridiculous for words is well worth viewing for the shots of animals in the wild and an enchanting musical score added in re-release. Brought to you by the same production team that did the original King Kong.
